    First they took the life of the father of these 4 unfortunate children and they took their mother. Who will look after these children? As a father I feel sorry for these unfortunate children and I request the judiciary to give maximum punishment to the perpetrators of this crime.

    May God punish who ever committed these inhumane acts and do the same to their protectors.

    She also paid for the delay in justice for her husband's killing. It should be no problem for the police to catch the criminals who made the poor children orphans.

    Once again, Sri Lanka is one of the safest countries in the world.

    If she was a witness to her husbands murder few years ago, it means that case had not been concluded. These are the results of these long delays of court cases, and also the use of strong arm tactics by the politicians for their advantage, while justice is suppressed by them. These drastic increases of blatant lawlessness is the result of all these.

    Not a day goes by without a news of this sort! All the culture, heritage, etc we boast are just mere words now a days. Shame on our country, people and their values.

    High time to introduce "Hang to Death" penalty. Other wise these type of "contract murders" will be common in this "DHARMADVEEPAYE".

    Is the country getting closer to the miracle? I doubt. Very sad about what is happening to our country!

    Killers go scot free today while the gov is boasting about miracles. Who take care of these children, and can you blame them if they become another killer group, like in Indian films. It's possible because 'justice delayed justice denied.'

    Gulliver Gunathilaka Sunday, 19 August 2012 04:34 PM

    Sad how lawless this state has become .

    amanath Sunday, 19 August 2012 04:48 PM

    its high time that people get some guns to protect themselves, and some good insurence for their kith and kins..

    Jeevan Sunday, 19 August 2012 05:07 PM

    Now those four children, should be teens and very youngs, are orphans. Death penalty is the need of the hour!

    Defense Secretary Sir, I thought you said there's no rise in the rate of crime and the media is blowing things out of proportion. Are you even aware of the number of crimes taken place within the last few days? Over to you sir

    I.R.FASSEY Monday, 20 August 2012 04:52 AM

    Husband dead few years ago criminals not punished and they have killed the wife. If they are let free they will kill the children too.Death penalty should be introduced soon otherwise SL will become Asia's paradise for gangsters.

    An effective Witness protection system is urgently required.
